Papertake Weekly


This is the first time I started a card and managed to finish it at one go. I am quite happy with how it turned out although my photoshop skills still leave a lot to be desired! This is my take for the Papertake Weekly:
Materials:
Papermania Patterned paper (need to check the name)
Forever Friends Stamp
Brown and white cardstock
Sizzix Elegant enhancements
White glitter
Scalloped card blank
Faber castell water colours
rub ons
sparkling trims - lime
Tools:
Die Cut Machine
How to:
  1. Cut a piece of brown cardstock, slightly smaller than card. Cut a piece of patterned paper about 1/2 a cm smaller and then cut in half.
  2. Stamp the image and colour in (I cheated here as the stamp was from one of my swaps!). Mat the image on brown cardstock.
  3. Die cut the tag and corners (Latter twice). Use white rub ons for sentiment and white glitter to add some extra pizzazz to the corners.
  4. Assemble everything and use ribbon to adhere tag.

Thanks Dawn for the lovely sketch. You put me in the mood to make some love themed cards for Valentine's Day.
